"In our country, any CBC reporter can dream of becoming head of state"

A very well written summary and explanation of the past few months of what's been going on Canada.

My dear American neighbours,

I see the political crisis in Canada has finally made it into the Washington Post's Foreign Briefs column.

So, anticipating a flood of interest from all of you at the dog run in the morning, let me try to give you some idea of what's happening up there.

A few weeks ago, we had an election in Canada, a couple of weeks before yours, actually. A political party known as the Conservatives won.

Well, sort of. They didn't win in the sense that most of you understand winning. I'll get to that in a second.

They also aren't what most of you would consider conservative.

They support what you call socialized medicine, they believe in protecting a Canadian-controlled banking system, they believe in government as a vehicle for transferring wealth between regions, and they've actually muzzled party members who tried to make abortion a campaign issue.


Please do read the rest

Still has to get in the Bush connection.
Time to sell off the CBC.

If CBC thinks the Conservatives are like Liberal Democrats then why does CBC always parade the hidden agenda card during the election?

And would people stop calling the Conservatives 'Liberal'! We're not!!!

"The current office holder, Michaƫlle Jean, used to be a CBC reporter. Like me."

So, Neil Macdonald's hidden agenda finally slips out?

But CBC insiders (the real power in Canada) know that the fix is already in to make George Stroumboulopoulos Canada's next Governor General.
